I went with a couple of friends to provide a change from the usual open mic night we go to in Newbury. It has a pleasant bohemian vibe and exudes cosiness. Every performer gets to perform one piece, be it a song, a poem etc...More

Sometimes amazing, sometimes awkward; it's always variable, but always intimate, interesting and entertaining. Great bar, lovely people, fantastic craic. Highly recommended.

You can hear a pin drop in the East Oxford Community Centre on a Thursday night, in between the clapping, the stories, the poetry and the acoustic sets. It is an open mic without a mic, which is the essence of its charm. Not everything...More

I'd heard good things about Catweazle from a few different friends and was not disappointed. There is a lovely respectful, creative atmosphere in the Catweazle club, which is conveniently located at the heart of Cowley Road in the community centre (which seems to be transformed...More

I've been studying here for over two years, and nothing beats Catweazle. It's a true artistic community which really welcomes you in, and it's an absolute privilege to be a part of. It's by far the most intimate place I've ever played (and listened), and...More

I've been going to Catweazle on and off for about four years. It is a rare, precious thing - a melange of poetry, songs, stories and usually something strange and uncategorisable. Matt's charm and grace weaves this eclectic mix together, usually somehow finding a theme...More
